We are reading all about Emperor Penguins in English to support our topic learning all about the North and South Poles. Ask us what we have learnt so far or find out more at home and bring in your fascinating facts. We will be thinking about what we’ve read and our notes then writing our own information text...
Today has been our “It’s good to be me! Day” as part of Children’s Mental Health Week. We were lucky enough to enjoy a visit from Mrs Preshous and her therapy dog, Libby. We have discussed looking after our minds and bodies, joined in with a giant doodle, completed some mindfulness colouring and been active taking part in boxing and Tae Kwan do.

Our first little English project of 2020 has been The Slightly Annoying Elephant by David Walliams - the children have made excellent predictions and written some great descriptive sentences so far. They are in the process of planning their own version of the story and choosing which animal will be their main character has been lots of fun. The children have had some interesting and imaginative ideas and we look forward to planning more and writing our own stories next week...
